    Sources for OpenXR loader, basic API layers, and example code.

    OpenXR API layers are like Vulkan API layers. There are two API layers that are provided by default, one to dump api calls and one to validate api calls. Those layers are now included in the openxr_loader_windows-*.zip on the OpenXR-SDK-Source releases page but you probably have to set the XR_API_LAYER_PATH environment variable or some registry key on windows for the loader to find them.

  • StereoKit

    An easy-to-use mixed reality library for building HoloLens and VR applications with C# and OpenXR!
